  • Forfeits, two wins gives...

    Shawn Damhoff and Calvin Cox scored Chatfield's lone head-to-head victories, but combined with five forfeit victories it was enough for the host Chargers to pin a 41-36 loss on Columbine in their dual wrestling match Jan. 26 at Chatfield Senior High School.
    Damhoff scored a pinfall win over the Rebels' Justin Hinkley in 1 minute, 19 seconds in their 113-pound bout and Cox scored an 18-2 major decision at 126 pounds over Josh Wyatt.

    Davis scores twice as Chargers snap a two-game losing streak
    BRECKENRIDGE
    — Kyle Davis scored two second-period goals and David Stephens’ third period power-play score proved to be the game-winner as Chatfield defeated Summit 3-2 at the Stephen C. West Arena on Jan. 21.
    The win snapped a two-game slide for the Chargers (6-5-1, 7 points Foothills Conference).

  • Horodyski shatters butterfly...

    ARVADA — Ashley Horodyski, in her own words, was struggling toward the end of her 100-yard butterfly final on Jan. 21 at the Jeffco Invite. Yet, by the looks of the end result you wouldn’t have known it.
    The Columbine swimmer set a meet record in 56.67 seconds, holding off Ralston Valley’s Erin Metzger-Seymour by .16 seconds for one of two Lady Rebels’ victories at George J. Meyers Pool.

  • Chatfield stops Rebels for Bame

    As if the Chatfield Lady Chargers didn’t have enough of a reason to win on Jan. 20, after all they were hosting archrival Columbine at Chatfield Senior High School, there was also the will to win for its fallen leader Brittany Bame.
    With Bame watching from the sideline with crutches in tow and her high school career over, Chatfield broke a tied game early in the fourth quarter with an 8-0 run and pulled away for a 59-50 win over the Lady Rebels.
    Kristi Vaninger led three Chatfield players in double figures with 15 points. Kristi Ohlschwager added 13 and

  • Rebels’ experience pays off

    Josh Daly knew what the situation was going to be like, the atmosphere that is a Columbine-Chatfield boys basketball game.
    The Rebels senior guard knows how big of a rivalry this is, especially this season with both teams sitting near the top of the standings in the 5A Jeffco League. Thus, he and his Columbine teammates were intent on playing with a lot of energy and staying atop the conference standings.
    And that’s what they did.

  • Snow, Columbine’s defense clamps...

    WESTMINSTER — Great defense and the ability to capitalize on turnovers were the two factors that helped Columbine’s boys’ basketball team score a 51-39 win over host Standley Lake on Jan. 12.
    Columbine (9-3, 4-1 5A Jeffco League) dominated the pace of the game with its defense, forcing Standley Lake to play more physically and subsequently draw fouls.

  • Chargers fumble puck in OT loss

    WESTMINSTER — Twice, Chatfield had one-goal leads in the third period. And, twice, they slipped away. Then Standley Lake’s Cody Thompson made sure there wouldn’t be a third times a charm for the Chargers.

  • Defensive Eagles fend off...

    Chatfield and Dakota Ridge entered their game with each other on Jan. 11 at Dakota Ridge High School each needing victories after suffering tough losses in their most recent games to Arvada West.
    It turned out to be a seesaw game, but Dakota Ridge eventually prevailed 54-53.
    “I think both teams wanted to do well,” Dakota Ridge head coach Traci Nemechek said. “It was a typical Chatfield-Dakota Ridge battle. There’s always a lot of pride on the line.”
